Mold Air Quality Testing
Scope of air sample testing/exclusions: the scope of this testing is the visual and accessible areas of the home. We do not do anything destructive such as removing drywall; baseboard; flooring or access enclosed duct work. Air sample test is unlikely to pick up mold growing in concealed or restricted locations such as wall cavities; under flooring; behind furnishings and may not pick up mold in the HVAC system and components if no spores are being released into the home.
We suggest that visible staining that indicate mold be tested with contact sampling. This will provide more accurate testing results. Contact sampling may require additional cost and can be determined at the time of inspection.
This is an indoor air quality test for mold. We take an air sample of the outside air and one at the A/C return, (if there is more than one A/C then we take a sample at each return for that unit). This will tell you what types of mold spores are present in the air, in the home and at what levels.
We use fully accredited local testing laboratory and results are reviewed by the most experienced mold professional in the area. Results are normally back within 1-2 business days.
Takes 1-2 business days for our office to receive the results from the lab.
Fee with Home inspection: $250.00
Fee without Home Inspection: $310.00
Each additional A/C sample: $95.00 per A/C unit
Protocols for Mold Air Quality Testing
- We need all windows and doors shut except for normal exit or entry.
- The A/C set on a normal setting 12 hours prior to us coming out to the property.
- No vacuuming the day of testing.
- There needs to be no rain present for at least one hour prior to testing.
- If it is raining during the inspection period we may have to reschedule this test.
** Mold Note:
There needs to be no rain present for at least 1 hour prior to testing. If it is raining during the inspection period we may need to reschedule the test.
